* VillainSong: "{Antichrist Television Blues)" is sung from the perspective of a father who willfully exploits and possibly abuses his daughter, all the while using religion to justify his actions. (The WhamLine below implies he's aware of his own villainy, though.)

* [[StageMom Stage Dad]]: "(Antichrist Television Blues)" The track is rumoured to have been originally titled "Joe Simpson (Antichrist Television Blues)", meant as a direct attack at the father of Jessica Simpson and his exploitation of his daughter's sexuality while stating that he's a very religious man.

'''Arcade Fire''' are a UsefulNotes/{{Canad|a}}ian indie rock band formed in Montreal in 2001 by Texan ex-pat Win Butler (then a student at Concordia University in Montreal) and his Haitian-Quebecois then-girlfriend (now wife) Regine Chassagne (then a student at crosstown rival [=McGill=] University). Although their numbers can swell to ten on tour, the core band consists of seven musicians (most multi-instrumentalists): Butler (lead vocals, guitar) Chassagne (drums, accordion, vocals, everything), Richard Reed Parry (guitar, everything), Jeremy Gara (drums), Tim Kingsbury (bass), Win's brother Will Butler (keyboards, synth) and violinist Sarah Neufeld.

* ConceptAlbum: All of their albums have at least shades of this: ''Funeral'' focuses on aging, loss, and community; ''Neon Bible'' is darker and fixates on the apocalypse and religion, with television and the ocean also used as motifs; ''The Suburbs'' focuses on childhood and the past. ''Reflektor'' returns to religious themes, exploring death, the afterlife, and Myth/GreekMythology, as well as acting at least partially as a criticism of modern society.

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: As eclectic as you'd expect a rock band with an accordionist (Regine) and string section to be. Their live shows have been described as like "a [[TheClash Clash]] concert hijacked by the Creator/CirqueDuSoleil."

[[Music/{{U2}} Bono]] and [[Music/TalkingHeads David Byrne]] have both sung their praises, and they've performed live with DavidBowie, {{U2}} and BruceSpringsteen. Arcade Fire are known for changing their sound between albums and once even between an EP and album, which always splits their fanbase. Despite this, their commercial success continues to increase.
